You could try to rebuild the pcs-databases via project->project
settings->c++..->code completion and then remove all db's and add them

I do recall that code completion had a serious bug which caused kdevelop
to do an infinite loop that would extract all items out of the db. This
seems to be what you're seeing. I know this bug was fixed in the 3.4
branch, but I'm not sure about 3.3... I also cannot find the bug number
atm on
